Hello all, and thanks in advance for your help! Seeking info on the Metropolitan neighborhood of Savannah.

Crime stats don't seem to be too bad. Is it a safe neighborhood? We are looking at a few historic houses there. Seems to have cafes, shops, library and walking to shopping. It's about a half hour walk from the historic waterfront, correct?

As background - I'm from NYC [in Manhattan for many years] and my partner is also cosmopolitan and well-travelled. We've no kids and are comfortable in an emerging or gentrifying neighborhood. We'll likely work from home so hoping for a relative degree of safety etc. Looking at Barnard and W 41st Street homes. Goals are to live in a home we can renovate - ideally a home that has character and is not too expensive to pick up.

We love Savannah and want to make our home there.

the other neighborhood we are exploring is "Midtown" - along East Anderson. Thoughts?

Any info or suggestions are greatly welcomed. Thanks!

Barnard and 41st is pretty sketchy still and Anderson is dependent on the block. I live and work downtown, as a realtor specializing in historic homes, and depending on what your price range is, I would think you could find a better neighborhood.

I'm on vacation now, but feel free to ask me about specific houses. You can email me directly at matthew@kw.com

I've never heard of the neighborhoods referred to by those names. Barnard and 41st wouldn't be my first choice. I would try to get further into town depending on your budget and what kind of space you are looking for. Anderson can be ok, but is highly dependent on the cross street.

I live on Barnard around Gwinnett st, which I find to be a pretty nice area. Safety in Savannah changes in a matter of 100 yards.

suggest that you rent for a least 6 months until you get to know that area better. You could be making a big mistake or lucking up on a great deal. both areas that you mentioned have both good and bad.
